  1. TF2 failing to update

    @Luna Yeah, I'm sure, because that's support for server bugs, applications, reports, etc. Not for someone who wants to get their TF2 back into working condition.
  2. TF2 failing to update

    This is probably the wrong place to put this thread, but because there's really no other thread to put it into, and this is related to TF2, I've decided this is the most appropriate spot. So right when the jungle inferno update rolled around, I came home to an update. Simple, right? Well, no. Of course not. This just had to occur. So, I thought "There's an easy fix for this. I've dealt with it before." (which I actually have) and I decided to start doing the norm; verifying my game cache, changing download regions, etc. Still, no yield. I tried restarting my PC 5 times; 2 of them being manual restarts and 3 being BSODs, namely PAGED_ERROR_IN_NONPAGED_AREA and SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION as usual. If this sounds confusing to you, trust me, it is. I don't know what causes it, but I haven't been able to link it directly to steam at all. Anyways, after that, the update still wouldn't start. Tried clicking play. Nothing. Tried RESETTING my download cache. Still nothing. Then I had the bright idea to hit up google. "That's how everyone fixes their busted PCs, right?", I thought. Of course I was wrong. I was desperate enough to open up CMD and try stopping a service called DiagTrack, or something along those lines even though I had no clue what I was even stopping. Access Denied. I then relaunched CMD in administrator, and it successfully stopped the process. You'd think doing that would even help me in the slightest bit, right? Take a big guess. Bottom line is I need help and I'm willing to do pretty much anything besides reinstalling steam and TF2. Those already took a week to install, and I'm not dealing with that on a weekend. And if you don't mind, don't make some stupid joke about how I need better internet or I need a better PC, because that won't help and you're just going to waste your time. Oh, yeah, also, one more thing: EDIT: Tried using steam beta to download and this happened. Now it's bricked.

    But that's boooooooring.

    I wish Team Criticals worked outside of admin commands. It'd be so fun.
  5. Banning for Trial Admins.

    I think a new privilege for trial admins should be instated. Instead of not having the ability to ban for trials, allow them to ban up to a day (or any desired time). Any ban that requires an extension, such as a cheater or a repeat-offender that needs a longer ban, should be reported to the forums with proof and a thread should be made accordingly for a higher ranked staff member to view and take action upon. This would cull the population of repeat offenders and cheaters who bypass the currently active SMAC plugin and make the server more enjoyable. This would also allow trials to temporarily take care of a job where a full administrator would not be online to do. It would also take advantage of the guide on the forums that shows you how to create a video, using the forums to their fullest potential. If a trial were to abuse this privilege, they would either have the ability to ban taken away or more likely they would be revoked of their trial admin status. If you don't like this suggestion, leave a comment why, or if you do, tell me what I can improve. Thanks.

    Understood, thank you for the compliment as well. I'm relatively sure I won't be inactive for a long while. EDIT: Still here.
  7. Nightfire

    I'll get on that right away. Thanks for the reminder.

    I appreciate the compliment. What could I improve about my application, if you don't mind letting me know?

    I feel that I have been a positive influence on this community for as long as I can remember. When no staff members were online, I watched by the hour to see how everyone else was doing, gave some advice, and helped a bit of the players on the server by obviously trading with them, handing them extra items as a sign of "Why not? You *probably* need it more anyways.", and giving information to players who ask general questions about the server, some functionalities, et cetera. I know a good number of people on the server, done business with them, and built up a relatively good reputation with the community, enough so that I'm greeted when I enter the server by some people. I've been taking computer classes for two years now, but unfortunately during that time I was limited to taking classes that did not give me coding ability; one of my weaknesses for obvious reasons. However, I practically skulk the server every day and log in at least 4-6 times a day to check up on things, and I keep an eye out for when things go in the wrong direction. Fortunately, I also happen to type insanely fast and can react swiftly to situations in need in order to mitigate any additional problems the situation may have been able to cause. I'm on for at least 6-8 hours a day, and because I'm in the US Mountain Time Zone, I can be online when others cannot. I've seen people who take advantage of the limitations of the administrators and minge, hack, spam, whatever they can do to get on other people's backs and annoy them. At the time of writing, I currently have 1407 hours in TF2 and I'm not planning to quit any time soon. And besides, I need a new hobby anyways. Oh what fun it would be for me if I actually had something to do in my life that was worthwhile. On Mondays - Fridays, I can be on from 3 PM to 10 PM, or even past that if required. On Saturdays - Sundays, I can be on from 10 AM - 11 PM, or again, past that if required. At the time of writing, I am currently 15 years old. A bit young, I agree, but I think the benefits outweigh the downsides. If you haven't already noticed, I live in Arizona, so my timezone is (UTC-7:00) Arizona time. I also have Discord on my phone in case I need to speak with anyone to discuss something. My SteamRep profile also happens to be clean. I have donated to the server before, evident by my existing maroon colored chat. I have done 12 total hours of community service, and that was for a health class I took. Never really could find the time for it. I have had only one past experience being staff on a server, and that was being a moderator for a server that had died out long ago in Garry's Mod. If it counts, I've also been awarded donor admin in a server I've quit to devote my time to TF2, and was only warned once and never given a strike. Didn't like the idea of people donating for admin, but I try to make the best of it. This is the end of my application. I appreciate you taking the time to read it, and hope you seriously consider me as a viable option for a member of the staff.
